Every fall, the Vermont Agency of Education selects an exemplary educator to receive the title of Vermont Teacher of the Year. In October, the honor went to Linda Cloutier-Namdar, a ninth-grade English teacher at Essex High School. Her tenure will begin in January. Cloutier-Namdar, whom Essex Westford School District superintendent Beth Cobb calls a "superhero," serves as a mentor to fellow teachers, is a Flynn Center for the Performing Arts teacher leader and a member of the nonprofit Vermont Writing Collaborative. Two other teachers — Sara Doncaster, music director at Lake Region Union High School in Barton, and Karen Greene, English teacher at Middlebury Union High School — were also honored. The award is "recognition of all those dedicated teachers who come to work every day with the hope and determination to make a difference in the lives of the children and young people in their care," said Cloutier-Namdar. "I look forward to the opportunity to meet and learn from fellow professionals in Vermont and beyond in the year ahead."
